In the fight against the spread of new coronavirus infections, economic activities have become far more digitalized with the help of 5G and other ICT. Domestic population decline along with the covid-19 pandemic has caused the market to be over-supplied, and we need to create a new way to boost demand and prevent the pandemic simultaneously. This project provides both quantitative and qualitative economic analysis from the perspective of industrial organization and competition policy, with a particular focus on important sectors such as the medical and electronic power industries, and also with an emphasis on digital governance and new technologies.
